Should I get Tier on Tier shutters?

With so many design options to consider for your shutters, the best style for your home can feel like a daunting decision to make. If Tier on Tier is a top contender, then here’s a quick guide to this style of shutters and everything you need to know to help make your decision.

What are Tier on Tier Shutters?

What’s the benefit of Tier on Tier Shutters? 

This style of shutter is a great choice to open up the possibility of more versatility of use for the shutters thanks to the function of controlling top and bottom panels independently to one another. Top panels can be opened to let light through into the room whilst still maintaining a good level of privacy. They are a great choice for anyone who is not sure whether café style or full height shutters are preferred and to get the benefit of both on their window.

Is there any reason not to get Tier on Tier Shutters?

Although Tier on Tier shutters make a brilliant addition to most rooms in the home, it is occasionally not the best option for bedrooms because of the slight gap between the tiers. This gap is due to the tolerance required between top and bottom panels so they continue to operate smoothly throughout the lifespan of the shutters. For light sleepers, this additional light gap can lessen the room darkening possibilities of the shutters which may be vital for a good nights sleep. There is however a solution to this in our room darkening blinds which can be built into the shutter framing to be pulled down behind the shutter to block out any light behind the panels to avoid any shining through the slats and panel tolerances.
